Well I am jacked, a bit nervous, and thankful for this opportunity.
I head out tomorrow and if all goes well – electricity/wi-fi/rules, etc. – I hope to be blogging the conference live back to you here in the States.
There are many people I would like to thank for donations; there was a total of 8 people and one group that chipped in and since some don’t want to be listed on the blog I will just say thanks to all of you. The donations offset the cost enough along with some handy savings, I was able to bring my wife along for a once-in-a-lifetime European date. One group can be thanked, that is my high school Athletic Booster Club, as they surprised me with a 50/50 raffle in the last football home game. I can also thank my parents as well for their kind donation.
This is mainly a “business” trip as I really want to get the information out to as many people as possible, often time we don’t get to hear about such things in a timely manner. That being said I will do the best I can; there is a 7 hour time difference to central time, meaning on Thursday I should begin at 4am CST (earlier on Friday). Regardless of the circumstances I do have wi-fi in the hotel so I can at the very least write a wrap up if needed (and it will be at a more convenient time for you). I will also have Twitter available, so one way or another you will get information!
Here is the Program for the event.
I will also try to be “journalistic” and see if I can get a few of the presenters and those in attendance to answer questions. The problem is that I don’t have any set questions to ask, feel free to include some in the comments section.
Again, I truly appreciate this opportunity and thank all of you who come to this blog, without the interest and massive amounts of hits a day this would never had happened.
